Administrator cannot delete Panther Jaguar files from Win 2k Server.

Cannot delete some Macintosh OSX files from my Win 2k server, when
logged in to the server as administrator with ALL rights. We are
running a Workgroup (no AD) and Mac Server IP v8.x for Macintosh to
access. I get the error: The system cannot find the file specified.

Also cannot change the file or enclosing folders name, location or
permissions, or attributes.... get the same error. The files are
visible on the server, from Mac OS 9.x and 10.2x and 10.3x. They
cannot be backed up. I have shut down and restarted the clients and
server- independently and together. Makes no difference.

I'd like to shoot the @#!$ thing, but I can't. There is valid data on
the disks too.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Usually this is because there are illegal characters in the file names
from the Windows Side. I can put slashes in my Mac file names and put
those files on a Windows server from my Mac, I can also put leading or
trailing spaces in file names, not handled well on Windows
